Gifts from Caleb

Having an eye single to the glory of God
Caleb has kept us in places where our feet are shod
With a sparkle that shines towards eternity
Caleb shines a light giving us the gift of certainty
With little hands to heal our weak and weary hearts
Caleb has reached out and touched us with Christ’s healing art
A small master painting a portrait oh so brilliantly
Caleb’s presence has greatly strengthened our testimony
Increasing our faith and making us sure
Caleb reminds us of a love that is so pure
Reaching out with arms open to embrace
Caleb with no doubt has Christ’s countenance upon his face.
Oh little Caleb we are so grateful for all that you give
We’re so lucky for each and everyday you are able to live
Now we know of a greater love
With all the gifts you’ve brought from above
The world sees you with little but we see you with so much more
Our understanding is now greater since you’ve opened the door
Oh little Caleb how we love thee so
Your love is helping us to understand a love we all know
Oh little Caleb be it known unto you
How great you are and that people like you are few

Joseph C. Baadsgaard
